For information on the Wiki's moderators, see Kpop Wiki:Moderators.

Different users have access to different functions of the site. While anyone can do most things on the site, including reading and editing, administrators have access to more functions than a moderator and regular user.

Administrators abilities

These additional functions include:

  • Deleting and undeleting pages, page histories, and uploaded files.
  • Locking (protecting) a page so it cannot be edited or renamed by users without admin rights or autoconfirmed status.
  • Blocking IP addresses or user names from editing; and very quick "rollback" of undesirable edits.
  • Editing the interface by changing system messages and skins.

Bureaucrat abilities

A bureaucrat can make other users into bureaucrats or administrators on their own wiki.

Bureaucrats can also give users the ability to "rollback" edits not made in good faith.

Staff

Wikia staff members have full access to all Wikia. They will be shown in Special:Listusers/staff on any wiki. Please use Special:Contact to contact Wikia staff.

Questions

How do I use administrator powers?

See Help:Administrators' how-to guide for a guide on using admin functions.

Becoming an administrator

Kpop Wiki is currently not open for administrator requests. However, users can first apply to become a moderator if the following requirements are met:

  • Must be an active member of the community
  • Must have actively contributed to the Wiki for at least 3 months.
  • Must demonstrate the understanding of the Wiki's guidelines and policies. Your previous contributions and messages may be reviewed to verify your experience.
  • Must understand the difference between vandalism and good-faith edits
  • Having experience dealing with other people.

When a user becomes a moderator, their user rights may be upgraded to an administrator depending on their continuing contributions and interactions with other users.

Requests for moderators will appear on the Wiki's Discussions under the Announcements category whenever the need arises. The post will detail what requirements must be met and users to leave a short message on why they want to become a moderator (example of a past post). You may also ask the Wiki's bureaucrat directly on his or her talk page to request to be a moderator. However, note that there is no guarantee that your application will be approved depending on the Wiki's current needs and activity.

What can administrators not do?

Administrators should not use their administrator powers to settle editing disputes; for example, to lock a page on a version he or she prefers in an editing dispute that isn't vandalism. Administrator powers should be used to help keep the wiki clear of vandalism, spam, and users who make malicious edits, but not for simple disagreements between users acting in good faith. Ideally an admin shouldn't be considered "in charge". The ideal admin is just someone who is trusted to have a few extra buttons and to use them for the benefit of the Fandom community. If there is an abuse of admin rights, disciplinary action may be taken the Wiki's bureaucrat in the form of either a warning, demotion, or removal.

What happens if there is an internal dispute?

If you are in dispute with another administrator or moderator, it is recommended that you attempt to resolve the issue directly between one another through their message wall first. Disputes must be handled in a respectful, civil manner, to attempt to find an acceptable resolution quickly, with minimal disruption to the Wiki. If the dispute can not be resolved, the Wiki's bureaucrat may have to step in to mediate.

Note that Fandom staff should only be used as a last resort if the dispute can not be resolved. They can be contacted through their request page.
